Preferential RWY. Torino has one runway, 18/36:
Preferential runway is RWY 36, provided that:
if the runway is dry, the tail wind component is not greater than 7 kt
if the runway is wet, the tail wind component is not greater than 5 kt
Therefore, RWY 18 shall be used when:
the tail wind components is greater than above limits
braking action on RWY 36 is reported as “poor”
Low Visibility Procedures (LVP).
LVP will be in force when:
RVR is equal or less than 550 m and/or
when cloud base height is below 200 ft according to the meteorological local report and/or
the rapid deterioration of weather conditions recommends so
Pilots will be informed by ATIS and/or ATC communication when LVP are in force.
Operations in CAT II, CAT III A/B and LVTO are allowed only for RWY 36. Departures may also be allowed from RWY 18, when LVP are in force and RVR is equal or greater than 400m, for meteorological reasons or aircraft performance require so for safety purposes.
Aerodrome operating minima is RVR not less than 75m.
In LVP conditions reduced airport capacity can be expected due to restrictions applied to ground movements. Furthermore, all pilots shall report to ATC:
reaching RHP/IHP, unless otherwise instructed by TWR;
when ILS sensitive area has been vacated as identified by the end of the green/yellow colour coded TWY centerline lights;
reaching the assigned parking stand.
For taxi procedures with LVP in progress, refer to applicable charts.
Taxiway J is closed.
Taxi/Landing light must be on at all times.
Following restrictions apply to taxiways:
Taxilane N (on main apron) MAX wingspan 38m
Taxilane M, MAX wingspan 36m
Taxilane from L to M MAX wingspan 38m
Start-up at parking positions, exit from self-manoeuvring stands and taxiing shall be performed with minimum required thrust.
When landing operations on RWY 36 are in progress, the use of runway holding position on TWY F is forbidden and aircraft code E and F taxiing toward TWY G, shall hold not beyond intermediate holding position G1.
Self-manoeuvring operations are permitted only from stands 100 to 105, 601 to 604 for aircraft with maximum wingspan 24m.
From stand 100 to 117, 201 to 204, 307,400,701,702 and 800 pushback is required.
Pushback operations and start-up shall be approved by ATC and shall be performed facing south.
Access to runway via taxiway D permitted only for aircraft with ICAO code A and B.
Use of RWY holding positions on TWY B, C, D, E and F during taxiing operations on TWY Y and apron TWY L:
During taxi operations on TWY Y and apron TWY L use of RWY holding positions identified by pattern B on TWY B, C, D and E and by pattern A on TWY F are not allowed
During taxiing operations of A or B or C or D code ACFT on TWY Y and apron TWY L only A or B or C code ACFT are allowed to use only the RWY holding positions identified by pattern A, on TWY B, C, D and E
During taxiing operations of E or F code ACFT on TWY Y and apron TWY L none of the RWY holding positions on TWY B, C, D, E and F can be used.
Access to RWY via TWY D is allowed only to ACFT with ICAO code A and B.
